do you want to know how long did it take to stay in line to buy bread?
OK, right after Great Patriotic War, at near famine situation, people would have to get up at the middle of the night and stay in line for hours, and not alway they would come home with bread. It was not enough. And, at this time, it was limited, as well as other products like wheat, soap.
During my young and adult time in the USSR, I don’t remember line to get bread. It was always enough. The “cupon” to get oil, butter, soap was re-introduced to Ukraine in late 80th. A family would have only be able to buy certain amount of these products a mouth, there was a huge line up, and not always, we would go home with it. But I think bread was ok.
